    “We had a lovely weeks holiday in the cottage, good location just what we wanted.”


    The cottage had everything we needed but just a couple of issues. This time of year its getting colder, but we could not alter the electric wall mounted heaters, they were at a pre set temperature (not warm enough) Main bedroom and lounge some evenings were cold. We did light the coal fire this took a while to get going, so no good if you had been out and just wanted a bit of heat in the evening for an hour or two. Some hooks near the shower in the en suite would be good. Other than that, we had a good time and the neighbours were helpful.

About the location


Hayfield 2.5 miles; Buxton 11 miles; Castleton 11.5 mies

New Mills is a small town situated on the borders of North West Derbyshire and Cheshire, forming part of the Derbyshire Peak District. Dating back to the 13th century, the late 20th century saw the Torrs Riverside Park (‘the park under the town’) come into being a place for recreation and relaxation, along with the New Mills Heritage Centre, opened to promote tourism in the area. The Torrs Millennium Walkway, a much-admired bridge, is set deep in the gorge and attracts many visitors, while Chapel en le Frith, the Capital of the Peaks, is only 5 miles away, boasting a cobbled market place and historic old stocks. Within easy driving distance is the delightful spa town of Buxton, famous not only for its therapeutic spring water, but also for its Pavillion Gardens and splendid Victorian Opera House, which boasts a variety of shows, attracting people from all over the world. Within easy driving distance are the Blue John show caves at Castleton and many stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Lyme Hall. You could even leave your car behind as there are direct rail links to Manchester, the Hope Valley and Sheffield. An ideal base for exploring the whole of the Peak District.
